Martin Freeman teased Black Panther 2 as he prepares to come to America and begin production “in the coming months.” “I’ve read the script. It’s very good and we will be doing it at some point I guess in the next several months, I’ll be going to the States and doing that. But I’m very excited about it, yeah.” – Martin Freeman
The actor will reprise his role as CIA agent Everett Ross in the Marvel superhero picture, which he previously performed in the Marvel Cinematic Universeblockbuster Captain America: Civil War. The film, officially named Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, will hit theatres on July 8, 2022, according to the Marvel Studios
Martin claimed he was really happy to get back on set for the sequel to the 2018 picture, which starred the late Chadwick Boseman as the eponymous hero, on Thursday’s The One Show, but was sworn to secrecy by Marvel’s Powers That Be. ‘No, except the fact that it’s happening because, as you would have guessed, Marvel have sworn us all to secrecy,’ he answered when asked by host Ronan Keating whether there were any indications or cues he could provide fans about what to anticipate.
The film is expected to pay homage to Boseman, who died of illness last year, with Marvel executives already clarifying that his character T’Challa will neither be replaced nordigitally replaced via CGI.
‘Chadwick Boseman was an extraordinarily gifted actor and an amazing personality who influenced all of our lives professionally and personally,’ Kevin Feige stated last year.
T’Challa the Black Panther, as portrayed by him, is legendary and surpasses any previous rendition of the character in any media from Marvel’s history. As a result, we are not going to replace the character.’
